Felix is not just fast in the speed sense but quick thinking too and when Ben the dog goes missing he knows just what he needs to do to help find him. Full of little factual snippets set alongside the story and the pictures that tell the reader a bit more about rural life and the world of agriculture and thereâ€™s even a terrific straw bale maze game at the end of the book to play with your child.
Every once in a while a childrenâ€™s book character comes along that really captures the imagination of its audience, garnering a legion of loyal fans eager for the next instalment of their particular heroâ€™s adventure. We all know, by first name, a postman and his black and white cat (Pat, oh and Jess, of course), an explorer and her best friend Boots the monkey (Dora, who else?), a builder and his team of mechanical chums (Bob, how could you forget?) and the fireman from the Welsh Valleys with the bright, clean engine (could only be, Sam). But how familiar are you with a kind, friendly, super clever, shiny blue tractor from Ambers Farm? His name is Felix, Felix the Fast Tractor.
Other Felix titles include Felix the Fast Tractor and the New Building and Felix the Fast Tractor and the Coal Delivery.
More factually accurate than other titles of this genre, helpful â€˜want to know more?â€™ sections appear every couple of pages, while featuring colourful characters, appealing storylines and delightful illustrations, perfect for this age group.
